Last night I replaced the door boot seal and now when I push the start button the door doesn't lock. So the machine doesn't fill with water. I didn't unplug the door latch to install the door boot seal but it did have a lot of "crud" built up on it. Apparently from the bad door boot seal. it was ripped al the way around. I did notice the black plunger doesn't click when I push it. Does the machine need to have laundry in it for the machine to work/ fill? I tried to run it empty for a test. When I hit the start button shouldn't the door lock? How can I test the door lock assembly? Thanks in advance.
ANSWER Hello Brian. No, there does not need to be a load in the unit to test it. It sounds like the lock assembly may have been damaged by the water in the unit. Test for power tot he lock when start is pressed. If there si power there, replace the lock assembly WH10X10006. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
